Words of Encouragement

Pretty simple card for the Impression Obsession Words of Encouragement challenge. In Darnell's terms, I wanted to use NBUS--that being my IO Striped Banner, D8821.  I stamped it with 3 Encore Metallic inks--I've had them forever (almost all the colors!) & still love them.  The sentiment is from the IO set called Follow Your Heart, CL407.  I hadn't used any of my flowers in awhile, so 3 of them with some sheer ribbon completed the card.  I'm glad you came to visit & hope you're having a good week.
